How to Win Valentine's Day

The best gifts for guys and girls that will prove you're the best significant other ever

Valentine's Day is upon us and if you're in a relationship, there's a certain expectation that attention must be paid. Your affection cannot, of course, be measured in dollars and cents. Then again, show up empty-handed and you'll undoubtedly find yourself in the doghouse. The struggle is real—have you been together long enough for jewelry? Not long enough? What we do know is that you don't have to go nuts on silly, frilly Cupid-themed crap. So step away from the oversized drugstore teddy bear, heart-shaped jewelry or boilerplate red roses. Think outside the box and pick up something the guy or girl in your life might actually like.
